Easy lock makes it easier for users
to find the lockhole correctly,this lock
adds gaps on both sides of the original
lock body. Users can turn the lock beam
around until it won’t move anymore. Then
press and it will be locked. It works the
same way in the opposite direction.
You can find the lock
hole effortlessly even
in the dark.
